The Houston Heights Association presents the fifth curated sculpture exhibit along the esplanade of Heights Boulevard. The sculptures are in eight locations along the esplanade from the 400 block to the 1800 block. The exhibits have been immensely popular to the residents and businesses within the Heights and to visitors from all over the U.S. and many other countries. Houston Heights invites visitors to enjoy photo opportunities alongside the sculptures, to post them on your favorite social media sites, and to simply let them fill you with a sense of joy as you stroll, bicycle, or drive the Boulevard. The goal of “Obstacle Art Path” sculpture project is to organize an exhibition that is a representation of regional works of contemporary art along the Esplanade for the enjoyment of our community and visitors.

This year’s installation was curated by Sara Kellner, Director of Civic Art + Design at the Houston Arts Alliance. Kellner selected artists Fariba Abedin, Adela Andea, Susan Budge, Tommy Gregory, Susannah Mira, Marsha Dorsey Outlaw, John Ross Palmer, and Anthony Thompson Shumate.
